During WWII imprisonment reached mass dimensions: no less than 35 million prisoners and 5 million the dead under detention, according to estimates approximated by defect. The factual treatment of prisoners would depend on a variety of factors summarily recorded by the A. drawing from the relevant foreign and Italian literature, among which she locates two latest published studies on the Italian POW, one concerning the USA, by Flavio Giovanni Conti, and the other focalized on Great Britain, by Isabella Insolvibile. These works come to complete the historiographic corpus on the Italian "war imprisonments", while still lacking is a general and wide-ranging study on the POW in Italian hands.
